The IP Lab welcomes Steve Pates and Marc Mapalo

September 2, 2019

We are delighted to welcome Dr. Stephen Pates (Alexander Agassiz Postdoctoral Fellow) and Marc Mapalo (OEB graduate student) as the newest members of the Invertebrate Paleobiology Lab at OEB and MCZ! Steve is a world expert on the paleobiology and systematics of radiodontans such as the charismatic Anomalocaris, and recently completed his PhD at the University of Oxford (UK) under the supervision of Prof. Allison Daley (University of Laussanne, Switzerland). Marc joins us as a recent graduate from the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Evolutionary Biology (MEME), which included rotations at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany (MS Evolution, Ecology, and Systematics) and Uppsala University, Sweden (MS Biology) among others, and brings with him a passion for tardigrades.
